I saw my first ZL1 Camaro yesterday at a new club meeting in Louisville. It was the Rally Yellow, and man was it beastly looking! I too hope they join the forums, I never can see enough Camaros. Maybe he will be at CamaroFest, you going?

He doesn't say black stripes - just red with black. Fog lamp area is black, the ZL1 hood insert is black or carbon fiber (which looks black), etc... Hence "red and black"

Why are you so concerned with being the 'big dog' and standing out? First rule of car enthusiasm - there will always been someone with a nicer/faster car. Enjoy what you have for yourself.

I got parked in between 2 ZL1s on our cruise night the other night and everyone was ogling my V6 because it's got Kool blue/white halo lighting and a different color grill. Go figure. They didn't know what they weren't looking at.

I'm still surprised I have not seen a ZL1 on the road yet in my area. Back in the 4th gen days, the cars were everywhere. We have a decent amount of Mustangs and some Camaros, but I have not sighted a ZL1 yet. Hell, I have even seen a few ZR1s on the road!

Red and black can mean a million different things. I see he expounded on his ambigous comment now and said Red CAR with Black WHEELS. Saying the fog lamp area is black and the hood insert is black when describing a ZL1 (fill in the blank and black) is redundant. All ZL1's, regardless of color, has these areas as black. Sorry I asked.
